Default [Q] PC wont recognise Tab

Im having problems trying to transfer files from my pc to my tab. my pc wont recognise the tab as an MTP device, but in the usb setting it is checked to connect as MTP. my cable is fine and the usb on my computer is fine, the pc does "see" the tab because it comes up as a connected camera but refuses to connect as media device. anyone know what i should do ?

In lieu of a better answer: Kies air. It sucks but it works and I am unaware of other alternatives.

Are you using a custom ROM? I read that it has been a problem in some builds but is now fixed, so if you are using a CM11 ROM make sure you update it.

In some cases it helps if you reinstall the Samsung USB Drivers
